Model 6812D - Sugar Beet Harvester
Advanced design of Art’s Way 6812D Sugar Beet Harvester boosts capacity and increases beet retention. Design engineers have improved the crop retention of the Art’s Way 6812D Sugar Beet Harvester. The 6812D features improved barriers in the harvesting head. The hinged barriers allow the sugar beets to flow onto the rollers but prevent them from rolling back and dropping out of the head. The smaller double conveyor chains have been replaced with a single wider chain carrying more beets into the second set of rollers. The single chain eliminates an area that was prone to plugging with dirt and debris. The combination of these two improvements keeps the harvesting head cleaner while boosting capacity and flow.
The best cleaning capability on the market.
The 6812D Harvester provides several stages for superior cleaning to include conveyor rolls, 60 in. frameless transfer chain bed, 4 pairs of 10 ft. parallel grab rolls and a ferris wheel elevator. The new lighter weight retainer has been incorporated into the ferris wheel design making space adjustment between the retainer and the ferris wheel easier to accommodate the beet size of your harvest. There are no complex valve and control box on the harvester.
The Art’s Way 6812D Sugar Beet Harvester is unique among its class, a complete reinvention of the harvesting machine. We started with an innovative modular design, in which the lifting heads and ferris wheel can be changed to meet your specific harvesting needs. Choose from 8 rows with 22 to 30 inch row spacing or the 12 row, 22 inch spacing, all offering the best capacity and cleaning on the market today. Because the Art’s Way 6812D Sugar Beet Harvester is simply the best on the market. No other model boasts the same quality and flexibility when it comes to meeting your needs in the field.
